During our Intro to Wet Felting session, we learned how to do a little ziplock baggie felting. This one was created by artteacher. Once the wet felted piece dried, she cut it into a heart. I love her colors!
In case you missed the wet felting fun last Wednesday night over here, it is archived both on my Facebook page and on my YouTube channel. We had a whole lotta wet and sudsy fun all the while creating a wet felted piece, felted beads, a felted container and buttons! We managed to pack in a lot...an hour just isn't long enough. But I do love that those participating keep on creating long after we say goodnight. In case you missed it, here is our Wednesday night session:
Of course, it's never too late to join the fun. Sue told me that orders for felting kits are still rolling in which has me so happy! Here's a link to where you can purchase, if you are interested. Again, all previous craft nights are archived both here (subscribe!) and here (follow!).
And don't forget that we'll be continuing this crafting fun in May with Clay!
Supplies for that workshop can be picked up here. You can still join the fun without the supplies, of course.
Now, on to everyone's fiber creations!
Don't you love this needle felted Friday by the_doodle_birds? It would make a great pin or even an image on the back of a sweater! LOVE the flowers.
Look how productive echopaitsel was that night? Love the beads. I think everyone's take-away that night was that wet felting is pretty labor intensive!
How sweet is this colorful needle felted number by mrsdow_artroom?
Can you even believe this? It's so beautiful, I think it needs framing. You should be proud, parkesphoto!
So, um, I just might have to track down mmmelllodyyy, raid her closet and steal this sweater. I am IN LOVE!
Last week, visualpraisestudio covered a hat in needle felted birds...and this week, she's covered even more. I love the talent in our craft night group!
There is a definite learning curve when it comes to wet felting. Work to fast, and the fibers felt at different speeds and might result in something unexpected (read: not what you'd hoped for). Working slowly is the best bet. That being said, never ever just throw away your felted creations. They can always be recreated into something far more interesting than you'd ever imagined. I love these earrings by alison.m.klein!
I love that the fam is getting in on the felting action! Check out this sweet cat being needle felted by kmmckinney's daughter.
Artroomblog has taken to needle felting...and entire coat! I know how taxing that is, kudos to you, Lee!
Jtheen is a week ahead of us, she's already started creating needle felted sculptures! How fun is this sweet and colorful bird?
Me being a sucker for bright colors, y'all know I love this dog by mrsdow_artroom! I see an art project based on this one, don't you?
This Bob Ross by the_doodle_birds made me so happy when I saw it. Adorable!
This masterpiece looks like it should be in a gallery. I can see mommaplouff creating a whole series of these beauties, don't you?
Another stunner by parkesphoto. I love the three dimensional look of this piece.
Check out these artist-inspired pieces created by Jan Marie...can you guess the inspo behind each one?
If you didn't believe that we got a lotta work done on Wednesday, Ashley Bruce has done a bang up job breaking it down for you!
Gemma has something so beautiful here. I love the organic nature of her piece.
When jtheen shared this needle felted cat, I was super stoked since it looks so much like my cat Asha. In other news, there is a book called Crafting with Cat Hair that my mama picked up for me. My cat leaves behind a lotta hair...but I don't know how I feel creating with it!
I want this on the back of a super hero cape! Love this, the_doodle_birds!
Everything about these needle felted numbers by mommaplouff make me so happy. All done with a single needle too!
Amandakaiser211 needle felted this adorable French bulldog. I am loving the color choices.
Tell me this isn't the baddest thing you've ever seen? Meganhallenbwck this is the best!
My buddy Earl Delong snapped step by step photos of his street-art inspired design. I know his students are gonna love this!
Check out this busy bee! Sarah Shumaker, you are killin it!
And this by Ms. Schmidt cracked me up! I mean, what else do you do with a wet felted piece besides make it into a crazy hair day portrait? I think students would LOVE this idea!
